A Rocky Start

5 A.M. came way too early today, but then again, it never comes too late.

You know what is the worst? Having an argument with your spouse, about something petty, first thing in the morning. It just sets the wrong tone for the day. I hate that! And then hubby leaves for work and you don’t feel settled about it…! That was the beginning of my day. But we calmed down and made up later. But it’s the worst, huh?

For breakfast, I ate 3 scrambled egg whites, light wheat toast with PB, 1/2 a banana and skim milk.

I ran out of my Victoria’s Secret lotions last week so I stopped at the store and bought 5 more bottles because they’re cheaper that way.

I was sad that a lot of my favorite scents are gone. I have some allergy problems to a lot of strong scents so I had to take a gamble because I never know how they’ll affect me. But I picked up this one, which gave me a headache all day because it ended up being too strong, but I loved the diamond dust in it!

How fun! I’ll have to see if they make any lighter scents with the diamond dust. It makes your skinny lightly glittery.

I ran out of cold coffee, so I made a fresh pot this morning. I added FF hazelnut creamer.

On my break, I ate a WW smoked string cheese.

When I was finally done working my first job, I ate my lunch. I made a tuna melt quesadilla with kale chips.

The Kale is so pretty before it’s cooked. Such a vibrant green.

I really wanted to eat something chocolate, but instead, I decided on a bowl of fruit.

Much better for me.

And then it was time to get some work done for my 2nd job. I worked for about three hours. Today I got to stay home and write, which was nice!

I had just enough time to write up a guest post and then it was time to make supper because hubby was on his way home!

For supper, I ate a burger with 2% cheese on a sandwich thin with BBQ sauce, roasted zucchini, and 1/4 cup of low fat cottage cheese.

And I still have points left over!

Tonight, we have a swimming lesson. I’m hoping to learn the back stroke this time. I know I won’t be disappointed, after all, our instructor’s name is Ariel. Yep, like the little mermaid.

I spend 30 minutes swimming laps of whatever stroke she teaches me and also alternating it with the other strokes she has taught me at other lessons. That’ll be my exercise for the day!

We are saving dessert for a soft serve cone afterwards.

Hubby and I made up after our argument from this morning and made a plan for the future. We always do that after arguments, think of a way that we can do better in the future. I’m a lucky woman to have a man who is just as invested in our relationship as I am. Smile
